In other gardening news we are starting to get a good amount of tomatoes and the crookneck squash is still doing well. My other zucchini are still hanging in there and we actually got our first (I hope of many) Romanesco zucchini. Hopefully my surgery and getting most of the SVB eggs off early in the season will prove successful. The cucumbers are doing AMAZING this year and we are all happy about that. My new one from Johnny's called the Amiga is very good. Of course we are getting many jalapeño peppers and John has made a fun pickle with cucumbers that he loves ( I can only handle about one or two bites). My radicchio is starting to pop up and I will need to re-seed two varieties that didn't come up as well. My last picture is of my Borlotti and Taylor Strain shelling beans that are almost ready. Once those are done I will have tons of space for my fall gardening veggies! Am I really already saying fall?
I am sharing this on Daphne's Dandelion's as part of Harvest Monday (as I usually try to do). It's a fun way to see what other gardeners are doing all around the globe.
